Starting in the Spring of 2018, the Mavericks will join the elite in action. The NY2LA Association, is a league of roughly 15-20 teams from across the country. It will consist of three required tournaments (locations to be announced at a later date), which will be "league play".
We will be bringing our "Select" teams (rosters TBD) to these three events, at the 15U (2021), 16U (2020) and 17U (2019) levels. The league consists of two other programs from Iowa (Martin Brothers & Quad City Elite), and many teams from the Midwest & as far away as Australia.
"This opportunity will be a great one for our organization. We do it all for the kids, and for the right reasons", said Tyler Cleveland, Executive Director of the Mavericks. "NY2LA runs the best tournaments around, and we wouldn't want to be playing anywhere else. Our programs culture has changed over the past year, and we are raising the bar for our competition level. This league will bring a different atmosphere for our players, and I truly believe we will be ready for it come April when we kick it off".
Mavericks Assistant Director, Trent Gosnell added, "It is a big opportunity for us. NY2LA is a very prestigious name and gives our program a way to measure where we're at. We are all excited as coaches and players to be able to compete at a high level, with some of the best competition around".
We will be releasing the schedule for the Association the early part of the new year.
